Friday's Featured Child - Mary Needs Encouragement

Mary's birthday is September 12, 1999 and she is 12 years old.  Her father left and her mother is unemployed, so Mary lives with her grandmother in the slums.  Her chore at home is fetching water.  Mary's best subject is social studies and she wants to be a lawyer someday.  She likes to play football (soccer).

Mary will be in class 8 starting in January.  It is a very important year for our students as they prepare to take exams to determine if they can move into high school.  Therefore, Mary would really benefit from a sponsor who would encourage her.

We are still offering our Basic Sponsorship Program at only $25 per YEAR!  You will receive three letters a year from your sponsored child and can write to her as often as you wish.  With an OLS and the ability to send small packages, you can send occasional gifts if you desire. We are also offering Holiday Gift Cards -- for a donation, we will send a Holiday Greeting to the person of your choice.  What better gift for both a child like Mary AND someone you care about then to send a Gift Sponsorship!  We will send a holiday card announcing the gift sponsorship.
